A Snapshot of Palliative Care Volunteering in NSW 2014

In 2014 Palliative Care NSW undertook a mapping of palliative care volunteer services in NSW by face-to-face and telephone interviews. The survey found a total of 38 palliative care volunteer services with about 1,242 volunteers supporting adult and paediatric programs. The ‘Snapshot’ report details the findings, and includes narrative comments from stakeholders reflecting on qualitative elements of their service delivery.

The ‘Snapshot’ report was written in 2014 as part of the Volunteer Support Services Program hosted by Palliative Care NSW and funded by the NSW Ministry of Health.
